A Palestinian citizen was also taken prisoner after violent raids on commercial stores at dawn in Barta’a village near Jenin.

In another incident, Israeli soldiers brutally beat Issa Amro, coordinator of youth against settlement group, near the Ibrahimi Mosque.

Eyewitnesses said that Amro suffered severe injuries all over his body in the attack.

The Centre also reported that Israeli occupation authorities held Sheikh Falah Nada, a Hamas leader, in administrative detention on Tuesday one day after his arrest from his village Qarawat Bani Hassan to the west of Ramallah on July 7.
